ational Pink Shirt Day, is a day dedicated to raising awareness of the very serious issue of bullying within our schools and communities.
In 2007, David Shepherd and Travis Price of Nova Scotia organized a protest at their high school by wearing pink in support of a Grade 9 boy who was bullied for wearing a pink shirt.
Bullying and cyberbullying can have
profound and lasting effects. We all need to do whatever we can to
help curb this type of behavior, and to promote kindness and
acceptance in our daily lives.
